to their $20 billion beer merger. warren buffett announced it's buying food giant heinz. and if u.s. regulators allow it, usair will take over bankrupt american airlines creating the world's biggest airline in the process. that deal is good for investors, but passengers worry airfares will shoot up as competition disapears. but take a look at this. just after airline deregulation came into effect, there were 20 major airlines in the united states. by 1990, there were only 12 major airlines in operation. today just seven and with "uss -- usair and american merging we'll be down six. usair and american don't have a lot of overlapping routes or hubs. in the end, there will only be about out routes out of the 9,000 or so that will be served by one airline. they may see fares go up. but look at this. since 1979, prices for an average domestic economy airfare have dropped from $579 then to $365 now, though they have started to tick up a little bit lately. so much for that myth that merging airlines causes prices to go up. thanks for watching this week. find me on facebook at facebook.com/ali velshi.
